No other ingredient stirs the passion of a Master Brewer like the hop. Inspired by this legendary flower we challenged ourselves to create a world class IPA. Head Hunter is an aggressively dry-hopped, West Coast-Style IPA with a huge hop display of pine, grapefruit, citrus and pineapple. A punch-you-in-the-mouth brew for those who truly love their hops! Uncivilized? Yes. Aggressive? Absolutely. Award Winning? Hell yes!

We can boldly say that this hoppy red is unlike any other you’ve tried. Hopped-up to the max, deep ruby in color, with a smooth as silk mouthfeel and an almost pungent piney aroma. Malts bone-up their magic with a hearty, biscuity, almost rustic touch of flavor and a slightly bitter fruitiness. A creamy head always tops it off. Recently Bonefide with a Silver Award at The World Beer Cup.

The German Brewers' Star represents Fire, Air, Water and Earth together to form perfect balance. It's clear that the brewer's star was intended to symbolize purity; a brewer who affixed the insignia to his product was thereby declaring his brew to be completely pure of additives, adjuncts, etc. In fact, folklore has it that the six points of the star represented the six aspects of brewing most critical to purity: the water, hops, grain, malt, yeast, and the brewer himself.

Inspired by the smoked beers (Rauchbier) of Bamberg, Germany, amped into this century with the super-human abilities of our Head Master Brewer. A smoky aroma with underlying sweet caramel malt. Flavor is smoke at first but gives way to a delicious malty goodness. Smooth with a light hop bitterness. Bavarian monks would have chanted relentlessly as they became one with this brew...

"Space, the final frontier..." at least the "space" in the brew tank that we filled with this silky Imperial Stout. We brewed this with cold extracted dark roast coffee, to boldly go where no man has gone before (not really, but it sounds cool). Fresh brewed coffee, rich roasted malt and semi-sweet chocolate dominate this brew. Creamy in almost a cappuccino-like way with a hint of bitterness. Mmmm, bean me up one of these, Scotty.

This knight rides alone with a lighter body than traditional black beers, lifted to it's mount with a great show of hop bitterness. Lighter than one would expect but deep in flavor.

The recipe for this hearty brew was developed while riding in a cloudy van with 2 old friends. A robust porter brewed with malted barley that was smoked over Adler wood by our brewers on-site.

Our clandestine friend Pauly tells the story this way... Porters were brewed in the US for more than two centuries but after prohibition it pretty much slept with the fishes. Now, thanks to some pioneering craft brewers, the American Porter is back and thriving. A rich and flavorful, dark, robust brew with aromas and flavors of chocolate, caramel, hints of coffee and roast, with a clean bitter hop finish. We invite you to taste our tribute to the American Porter. It's almost illegally good. Just ask for Pauly.

When this brew first came out of the tanks our brewer took a sip. Then downed some more. He put on his glasses, tilted his head and said "Damn, that's a Goggle Fogger!". The "Hefe" prefix means "with yeast" which gives this unfiltered wheat beer a somewhat cloudy or "foggy" appearance. Light aromas of wheat, bubblegum, clove and spice. Very refreshing with light hop bitterness and flavors of wheat, spice, bubblegum and hints of clove.
